Somali Chutney

This is not everyday Somali food. Not even a once-in-a-month thing, unless you frequent Somali restaurants. This chutney is consumed on special occasions which explains why some Somalis know it as Basbaas Alla-bari (feast hot sauce). Alla-bari is a large prayer gathering followed by a feast. That name also gives a clue that Somalis usually make their chutney spicy hot.

In this recipe, we decided to break with tradition and did not add any chilli to the chutney. We know many who like the phenomenal taste of the chutney but cannot handle the heat from hot peppers. Chilli lovers can add as much hot sauce as they wish.

There are many variations of this chutney, each cook using different ingredients and preparing it differently. It is known as Shidni, Shigni, or Basbaas Alla-bari. In Brava, Somalia, it is known as Achaari and is usually prepared from either dates and tamarind or mangoes and tamarind. Our version has dates, mangoes, and tamarind in addition to the tomatoes, onion, garlic, green pepper, and cilantro. It has salt, sugar, and vinegar added as well as the ubiquitous Xawaash seasoning. The result is a sweet, sour, salty, and tangy tasting chutney that is simply irresistible.

The oil in the recipe seem like it is a lot but it is required to help caramelize the chutney. It also acts a preserving agent, making the chutney safe to keep in the fridge for several months.

Chutney Somali

Il ne s’agit pas d’une nourriture Somali du quotidien. Pas même du plat qu’on fait une fois par mois, à moins que vous fréquentiez les restaurants Somalis. Ce chutney est consommé pour les occasions spéciales ce qui explique pourquoi certains Somalis le connaissent sous le nom de Basbaas Alla-bari (sauce piquante de banquet). Alla-bari est un grand rassemblement pour prier suivi d’un festin. Ce nom indique aussi que d’habitude les Somalis font un chutney très épicé.

Dans cette recette, nous avons décidé de rompre la tradition et de ne pas ajouter de piment au chutney. Nous savons que beaucoup adorent le goût phénoménal du chutney mais ne supportent pas la chaleur des piments. Les amateurs de piments peuvent ajouter autant de sauce piquante qu’ils veulent.

Il existe beaucoup de variations de ce chutney, chaque cuisinier utilisant des ingrédients différents et le préparant différemment. Il est appelé Shidni, Shigni, ou Basbaas Alla-bari. A Brava, Somalie, il est connu sous le nom de Achaari et il est soit à base de dattes et tamarin soit de mangues et tamarin. Notre version contient des dattes, des mangues, et du tamarin en plus des tomates, de l’oignon, de l’ail, du poivron vert, et du coriandre. Il contient du sel, du sucre, et du vinaigre ainsi que l’omniprésent Xawaash. Le résultat est un chutney au goût sucré, salé, aigre et acidulé qui est tout simplement irrésistible.

La quantité d’huile de la recette peut sembler importante mais elle est nécessaire pour caraméliser le chutney. Elle sert aussi de conservateur, et permet de conserver le chutney au frigo pendant plusieurs mois.

    I see Somali cuisine has so many similarities to Bengali cuisine( my country!) which helps me so much since my husband is Somali and I seem to do a lot of fusion cooking these days. I really enjoy the wonderful nostalgic trips down memory lane you take the readers on, it is such a beautiful touch to you recipes:) Somali food is so humble, much like the people and should definitely be celebrated:) big thanks!

      Wacalaykum Assalaam Waraxmatullaahi Wabarakaatuh.
      Waa ku mahadsan tahay salaanta wacan. Adigana qayr iyo caafimaad ayaan kuu rajaynaynaa. Soo’da Meeso waa kan, hadduu Eebbe idmo buskudkana waan soo gelin doonnaa. Mahadsanid walaal.
